Internal equity is just as important as external equity.

Which market to benchmark against?

Are there different rates of pay for different geographical areas?

Are you comparing jobs of similar nature and complexity (like with like)? 

Annual salary review

Should employees doing the same work be paid the same?

How can I differentiate between good and excellent performers?

Should we compare to the market midpoint or the 75th percentile?

How do I manage pay within the challenging economic climate and stay competitive?

Affordability vs increases in the market
